Velocity Speed is a scalar. Velocity is a vector. A car travels 5 mi, stops, and then travels 5 mi more. How far is the car from its starting point? Why do me need to deal with vectors?

Constant Acceleration Equations 2 v t v 0 v = v 0 + a t d = v 0 t + ½ a t 2 v 2 = v 0 2 + 2 ad If v 0 = 0, then the equations become: v = a t d = ½ a t 2 v 2 = 2 ad

Truck and Car Problem A car is at rest at a red traffic light. Just as the light turns green the car is passed by a truck traveling at a constant velocity of 15.0 m/s. The car immediately accelerates at the constant rate of 3.0 m/s in the same direction as the truck. Both the car and truck travel in the same straight line direction on a level road. a)
